Pokémon Black and White Starters are Disappointingly Ugly

Faces only a trainer could love

Want to see the Pokémon who'll be accompanying you on your next journey to become the world's greatest trainer? If the answer is "no", look away now.

Revealed in Coro Coro Magazine, the three starters do not yet have Western names but are known to fit into the well-established fire, water and grass triumvirate that has held up the series for over a decade.

At least the fire pig (hereby christened Hamferno) in the middle looks happy to be there, but we've already taken an instant dislike to the rather aloof grass Pokémon and feel nothing but pity for the dopey water-type starter.
